Conventional political wisdom states that Democrats get out the early vote much better than Republicans.
If that’s the case, Obama is in trouble.
The Gallup Poll conducted a very large survey using a sample size of 3312 registered voters. Keep in mind, a lot of surveys you read about have sample sizes closer to a thousand. So this survey is going to have a smaller margin of error than most. Gallup asked people if they had already voted, and if yes, for whom.
Romney is ahead 52% to 45% among these early voters. This is big news, but news that is being downplayed by the mainstream media (MSM).
It is no guarantee of a Romney victory. But it is certainly bad news for the Obama campaign.
